Yep. The "Documents" tab is not available on Trulia or any other 3rd party (advertising) syndication website. The information is only available through an agent who can access it on MLS. Some documents can be forwarded to consumers along with the actual property listing while others cannot.

If you are not working with an agent and would like assistance, contact me through Trulia or my website.

Good luck and "Happy Thanksgiving!"

Don't let a foreclosure stop you from buying a new home. See Comstock if you have a buyer in need. They have a flexible credit loan. This program assists homeowners who have recently been through a foreclosure, short sale or have recently emerged from bankruptcy.

The sale’s proceeds, even though less than what is owed on the mortgage, completely satisfy the debt. This should provide some peace of mind to homeowners in states that allow deficiency judgments, as they are assured that they won’t be liable for the deficiency amount in the future. More at

What you need to know is that at least for the next 12 to 24 months the expected value gain is going to be well over average (maybe 10% to 15%), and a lot more than what you can make anywhere else. If I were you I will keep it at least until growth goes back to the normal 3% to 5%/year. ... more

Loren Hoboy answered:
Your question is deeply concerning due to its timing and indication that you did not receive or understand the process when you entered into the purchase contract.

Unlike your home state, here you are represented by your own Buyers Agent. Look to find the contract title Buyer Broker Employment Agreement. The Buyer Broker has a duty to protect your interests and should be giving you good advice. they have a Fiduciary duty to protect your interests. If not, contact the company Broker to get help.

If you went directly to the Sellers Agent, and he had you sign a Dual Agency Disclosure, then you have weaker representation, but the Agent still has a duty to be honest and give you solid information. In this case he/she must be neutral, but that still means that you should not get good advice . If not, contact the company Broker to get help.

Renee answered:
Thank you to the kind people who responded. To the rude person from FL, all I can ask is how many unqualified buyers did you bring to the table, helping create the housing disaster? How many houses did you sell through sweetheart deals with the appraisers, jacking up the prices? How many real estate speculators did you push through just so you could get your commission? Don't get all moral and high and mighty. I've been paying taxes and contributing all my life. I did everything right, and you throw my VA loan in my face, the only small benefit I got from being a veteran. And yes, people all around me here in AZ are walking away from their mortgages without any consequences other than a temporary drop in their FICO, and they are the same people who bought at impossible prices while they still managed their two cars and their big screen TVs and their two vacations per year, while I scrimped and saved as a single parent. Because I'm over $100,000 upside down, I can't sell, which means I can't move, and my mortgage is double that of someone buying now in my development. No one will talk to me because I have been responsible, haven't run up a bunch of credit card bills, and have a FICO around 800. I should have been a deadbeat. I probably won't be able to retire because I'll never be able to break even on this house, and I could never make the mortgage on a retirement income. Am seriously considering leaving the country.

Thanks again to the nice folks who answered. Outta here. Won't be back.

Ann Miller SFR answered:
Please know that it is most important to talk with about 3 is a real estate/bankruptcy/short sale knowledgable attorney who will discuss your unique situation and options, next will be a tax expert such as a CPA who knows the rules and can give you your options regarding taxes, next will be a real estate agent who again is knowledgable in the local market where you are located. Once you have discussed your situation with these experts, you will have a good idea of your best options(s). Be careful of reading blogs and posts because laws can be different from one state to another. You must use experts who know your State laws as well as Federal.
Good Luck to you

Steve, I have investors and I also buy from the auctions everyday. I get scrubbed lists that start out with 500+ homes everday and we ge tthem down to about 5-10 that we bid on. If you are interested in having me forward that list to you, I can do that. My bidders are at the auctions everyday and have been there for the past 8+ years which is longer than most. Feel free to call or text me.

David Chiles answered:
Thank you for your question about a free listing of foreclosed homes. A good local agent can help you find foreclosure listings. If you are interested in Pre-Foreclosure in order to do a short sale or just for the information I suggest using a local real estate agent who is already signed up with RealtyTrac by making a contact request from their website.

The Foreclosure process starts when a homeowner cannot pay the mortgage and ends when the home is resold. The three stages of Foreclosure are: Pre-Foreclosure, Auction, and REO/Bank Owned. Pre-Foreclosure is the time period a homeowner has to repay the delinquent amount of the mortgage. If a homeowner does not pay the mortgage the home is auctioned. If the bids do not meet the reserve the lien holder (bank) reclaims the property and it becomes a Bank Owned REO.

You have options, your time frame is limited and being determined by others at this point it seems. A good discussion wold help us to achieve the best route to go. I have multiple attorneys for you to consider for that option, which is a great one.

I have a couple of other thoughts that could be shared once I know a little more about the details of the situation. Who is the first lender? How much is the first loan? What is the property actually worth? We might want to do a CMA to get the real current value.

Don't just give up at this point or you will likely loose all potential you may or may not have.

Doug Carpenter - Mortgage Banker answered:
I work with several realtors that can make a cash offer on your home the day they list it for short sale. I cannot guarantee that they can stop your foreclosure but I have seen the stop many that were just days away. After the trustee sale is postponed they have been able to negotiate a short sale with the bank. In my opinion it is better to short sale than to have a foreclosure on your credit.

My realtors have deep pockets and are former hard money lenders with a new business model. They might be able to rent the home back to you.
